Set current figure without making it visible

I'd like to make a figure "the current figure" by using
HOWEVER, I don't want myPicture to become visible.
The figure(myPicture) command makes myPicture visible by definition. Is there any other command that will simply make myPicture the current figure while keeping the visibility set to "off"?

Do you want to manipulate the figure 'MyPicture'? Is that why you want it 'current'? If so, you don't have to make it current. You just have to use the figure handle in the commands you're using. For example,
creates the figure and handle for that figure;
plots x,y on the figure with handle 'h'
title(h,'This is MyPicture')
adds a title to your figure.
